Doctor Who: Survival: music by Dominic Glyn   (CD review)

It felt rather weird having a CD from the near beginning of ‘Doctor Who’ with the Daleks and then this one, ‘Doctor Who: Survival’ by Dominic Glyn from the end of the original run together, although the release date for each was weeks apart. You couldn’t get more of a contrast in how composers had […]

Batman And Harley Quinn (2017)    (Blu-ray film review)

Harleen Quinzel aka Harley Quinn has now been part of the Batman universe for 25 years. Originating on ‘Batman: The Animated Series’ as little more than a walk-on part designed to complement another mad scheme from the Joker, Harley Quinn managed to find a fanbase and become a more prominent character within the world of […]

Batman The Dark Knight: Master Race by Frank Miller, Brian Azzarello, Andy Kubert, Klaus Janson and Brad Anderson  (graphic novel review)

Now how much to say about the plot of this mammoth book without becoming spoiler. This is some time after Batman and Superman battled in the previous older ‘Dark Knight’ adventure. Bruce Wayne is thought to be dead and Carrie poses as him from time to time. Superman has gone into a meditative mood in […]

The Comic Book Film Adaptation by Liam Burke  (book review)

Liam Burke’s book, ‘The Comic Book Film Adaptation’, is different to others on the subject I’ve read in recent months as he has been able to interview, albeit briefly, and quote from various sources. I think the prize one in the introduction is from Paul Levitz who explains the problem of which version of Batman, […]

Doctor Who: The Daleks: music by Tristram Cary  (CD review)

‘Doctor Who: The Daleks’ is the original music in episode order from the second ‘Doctor Who’ story as composed by Tristram Cary. As such, much of these musical pieces are snippets between dialogue. Unlike modern day (am I actually calling today ‘modern’ 54 years later?), the music rarely if ever overlapped the talking. If you’re […]

Now We Are Six Hundred: A Collection Of Time Lord Verse by James Goss and illustrated by Russell T Davies (book review).

‘Now We Are Six Hundred’ is a book of poetry by James Goss (Big Finish, the universe) and illustrated by the hitherto unknown as an artist Russell T. Davies (BBC, Channel 4, the universe also) is a thing to be welcomed. I’m pretty sure there has never been a poetry book although I’m sure someone […]
